New York - Now we know how Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson really felt about each other.

British e-publisher Clandestine Classics is releasing sexed-up editions of Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice  and other classics, with erotic passages woven into the traditional texts.

That means Mr Darcy "buried inside the depths" of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice  and Dr Watson declaring his "joy of knowing other men".

Clandestine managing director Claire Siemaszkiewicz says she has always been drawn to "the underlying sexual tension" in older novels.

The new editions were started before the Fifty Shades  phenomenon, but the release date was moved up to 30 July in hopes of attracting fans of EL James' erotic trilogy.
